Candy Jar Books 100 Objects of Dr Who

Available to order from

Candy Jar Books’ 100 Objects of Dr Who will include an interview with Christopher Eccleston, who played the Ninth Doctor in 2005.

The interview coincides with Eccleston returning to play the Time Lord for audio company Big Finish and finds the actor reflecting on Doctor Who series 1, enthusing about audio dramas, and talking about his love of Shakespeare.

With fresh adventures on the horizon for this incarnation of the Doctor, it’s the perfect way to whet your appetitite while waiting to hear The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Ravagers.

100 Objects of Dr Who is an unconventional biography of the world’s greatest sci-fi show, as told through one-hundred chapters, each detailing a different object associated with the show.

Alongside all the behind-the-scenes details you’d expect, you’ll also find niche trivia, sojourns into the lesser-explored corners of fandom, and answers to the questions few have dared to ask: which planets has the Doctor visited more than once? How many companions have met the Cybermen? And who first named the Sontarans’ home planet?

Author Philip Bates says: “Rose introduced me to Doctor Who – although I knew a bit about it before then because Dad watched it when he was growing up too – so I was thrilled to get the chance to interview Christopher. And, of course, he was witty and friendly and everything you want the Doctor to be.”

It’s one of numerous brand-new interviews scattered throughout the book, including: Nick Abadzis, writer of Titan Comics’ The Tenth Doctor comic; James Whittington, who worked on Cubicle 7’s Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game; and Colin Brockhurst and Gareth Kavanagh, editors of the popular Vworp Vworp! fanzine. Kavanagh is also the head honcho of Cutaway Comics.

Philip continues: “I’ve been lucky enough to interview a few Doctor Who cast and crew members over the years, so readers will also find quotes from, for instance, Matt Smith [who played the Eleventh Doctor], artist Anthony Dry [responsible for the recent Target novelisation covers], and Mark Strickson [Turlough].

“I wanted to give readers a pretty comprehensive tour of the Doctor Who universe, so there’s something new for all fans, whether they’ve been watching since An Unearthly Child or are relatively new to the series.”

100 Objects of Dr Who also features stunning new illustrations by Martin Baines, inspired by the objects inside. Readers who would like to sample the book can download a forty-three-page PDF book, 10 Objects of Dr Who, completely free from the following LINK

Candy Jar’s Head of Publishing, Shaun Russell, says: “100 Objects is a fascinating adventure through Doctor Who history. It is a wildly original take, which reads almost like a ‘make your own adventure’. The addition of exclusive material from Christopher Eccleston makes it an indispensable tour of the timey-wimey history of Doctor Who.”

100 Objects of Doctor Who is currently only available to order from the Candy Jar website, for £9.99 (+ p&p).To order, click here. It will be released on April 7th.

    Spotted the 7th Doctor era cleaner robot in the bottom left corner, a possible great toy Character never made. I built one years ago I might build a new better one!

    Looks good, I wonder what the Sonic screwdriver section is about? There has been a lot of research done on 2and Dr sonics by myself, and 3- 10 Dr sonics by Brian Terranova.
